NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE SCHOOL 



HISTORY OF THE SCHOOL 

THE New Bedford Textile School was established by the Trustees of The 
New Bedford Textile School, and incorporated in accordance with Chapter 
475.. Acts of 1895. 

The school opened for day students October 16th, 1899 and for evening- 
students October 23rd, 1899. The number of students attending the first year 
1899-1900 were 11 day students and 183 evening students. 

The first building consisted of three stories with a small basement. The main 
building was 64 x 100 ft., with an annex of 12 x 67 ft., on the ground floor for 
engine and boiler room. The power was a small 40 HP. with rope and belt 
transmissions. 

In 1902 the Knitting and Chemistry departments were added. The second 
addition was made in 1905, built on the south side, carrying the building to the 
Maxfield Street line. This addition was necessary due to the rapidly increasing 
number of day and evening students, and called for a rearrangement of the de- 
partments and equipment. 

A third addition was finished in 1911, joined to the original building by a 
bridge and a tunnel. This addition was properly equipped for theoretical and 
practical training in the Mechanical course, also containing class rooms for lecture 
work. 

The fourth addition came in 1922. The Maxfield Street building being carried 
West to the line of the original building. This building was three stories high, the 
first floor giving the C. Y. P. department an ample addition where spinning frames 
and twisters were located. The second floor was added to the Weave room, and 
finally the third floor included a complete Gymnasium. 

The school at the present time is one of the most sanitary, ample and effi- 
cient textile schools in the Country. The present building contains 50 rooms 
with over 100,000 square feet of floor space. The School now has more than 
$275,000 worth of equipment, about one half of which has been either donated 
or loaned. 

The New Bedford Textile School in the year 1929-1930 had 101 day students 
and 1230 evening students.

CHEMISTRY, DYEING, AND FINISHING 

DEPARTMENT 



THIS department is sure to give the "Tech" students all the training possible in 
chemistry, dyeing and the finishing of cloth. We were introduced into the 
mysteries of organic chemistry — which is still a mystery to some of the "chem" 
students. We also learned the intricacies of qualitative and quantitative chemistry. 

Here too, we learned the familiar terms used in weighing dyes and salts as — 
"pinch of dye" was equal to about one gram, or a "spatula full' was the equiva- 
lent to two grams, etc. 

This department has two fine laboratories equipped for dyeing and chemistry, 
a weighing room, a lecture room, and a print room. There are some fine convert- 
ing machines in the basement which we have finally mastered. 

The department is headed by Mr. Busby who has as his assistants Messrs. 
Brooks, Weymouth, and Broadfoot.

THE WEAVING AND DESIGNING DEPARTMENTS 



T 



HESE departments 'are allied to each other and hoth are essential to the 
success of the textile industry. 



Mr. Holt is the head of the designing department and it is here that the 
student gets an opportunity to display his genius for creative ability along 
original lines in cloth and color schemes. He is very ably assisted by Mr. 
Beardsworth and Mr. Moore. 

It is here that the student receives his training to fill a position as designer 
or commission house executive. Here he is taught creative design work for 
Jacquards or Dobbies, Color Cloth Analysis and Cloth Structure in all its details, 
making up the patterns that he desires and bringing them to the Weaving Depart- 
ment for completion. 

Mr. Acomb is in charge of the weaving department and with the help of 
Mr. Beardsworth and Mr. Moore they keep the weave room abreast of the times. 
It is here that the students get a practical knowledge of the various types of looms 
including Jacquards, Box looms, Leno's, and the very latest automatic bobbin 
or shuttle-changing looms, also the preparation of the warps for the loom. 

During the school year quite a few changes have been made on the old looms 
and in some instances new ones installed to take the place of those that were 
obsolete, thanks to the generosity of the makers of looms and preparatory ma- 
chinery. 

The student brings from the designing room the pattern he desires to create, 
and, after the warp has been drawn in according to his design, he places it in 
the loom and views with pride or otherwise his genius along these lines, and it is 
a pleasure to say that it is seldom otherwise. At the present time some very 
attractive patterns are in the looms, making it very hard for the classes of the 
future to beat them.

THE COTTON YARN DEPARTMENT 



HE C. Y. P. Department is the part of our school where the student is taught 
the principle of making strong and even yarn which is the foundation of all 
good cloth. 

Here are found all the necessary machines of many different makes on which 
the students have the opportunity to work and to produce yarns of their own 
making. This course is very practical, as the actual work is done by the student. 

Mr. Holden is the head of this department and is ably assisted by Mr. 
Gourley who give the students every attention as to detail. 

The theoretical part of Cotton Yarn Preparation is stressed in the class room, 
and the subject of Testing yarns is taken up with the very able co-operation of 
Mr. Manning of the Knitting Department. The testing room is equipped with 
the latest and best testing machines, the automatically controlled humidifiers, and 
is up-to-date in every respect. There is no doubt that this room will soon be 
increased in size, in order to take care of the work which is necessary to correctly 
judge the quality of yarns.

MECHANICAL DEPARTMENT 



ALL students, at some time or other, during their course at school, come in 
contact with some branch of the Mechanical department. Steam engineer- 
ing, elementary electricity, physics, mill engineering, drafting, and machine shop, 
all fall under the category of this department. 

As a part of the machine shop routine, the "Popular Mechanics" render first 
aid to the sick and needy machinery from the C. Y. P., Weaving, and Knitting 
departments. In this, the Mechanical department more than earns its "salt". 

Two excellent drafting rooms, an electrical laboratory, a steam engineering 
laboratory, a lecture room, and splendidly equipped machine shop, enables the 
students to obtain a thorough knowledge of the course. 

New Bedford Textile School is indeed fortunate in having such a depart- 
ment, made possible by the tireless and efficient work of Mr. Crompton, head of 
the department, and his assistants, Mr. Bayreuther and Mr. Walton.

HISTORY OF THE SENIOR CLASS 

IT is now time to say good-by. This is by no means an easy thing for vis to do. 
We have been together for a long time, while working and playing; now we 
have reason to rejoice for having been able to witness this worthy ambition of ours. 
We have learned to like the kind of life we led for the past three years, mostly 
because we begin to understand one another, begin to know ourselves in the real 
light as we really are. With this understanding, intimate frendships arose, and 
this, coupled with the co-operation which we received at the school, made our 
sojourn here a very pleasant affair. Now, with the passing of time, we also must 
pass on each a different way. 

Let us review our three years stay at the New Bedford Textile School. 

First let us look upon the year 1927, to be more exact, September of that 
year. Can you forget that memorable day when we were all gathered together 
in the library, each and every one of us shyly answering the questions necessary 
in order to be duly enrolled at the school ? Can you forget our first glance at the 
different instructors as they laid down the law, telling us what was expected. 
Much we marvelled at the material greatness of the edifice, and the prospect of 
being educated on so vast and important a scale detracted much from our blithe 
and cheerful spirit. Soon we grew less mindful of the gibes and grandeur of the 
upper classmen ; our own self-importance was leaking out. 

Months passed in rapid succession. We hardly became aware of our approach 
to seniority. 

Throughout these three years the Class of '30 has given liberally of its mem- 
bers to promote the success of New Bedford Textile School in athletic and 
scholastic achievement. In soccer, Roger Karl, Cecil Fell and Jim Dow have made 
this comparatively new sport from the start. Roger Karl, Cecil Fell, and Joaquim 
La Costa have lent their prowess for the success of the basketball team. 

A leading figure in all and every school sport is Roger Karl, having prom- 
inently won his letters in soccer, basketball and baseball and captained the three 
sports. In this latter sport Al Scaccia, Joaquim La Costa, and Stanley Prokuski 
were pre-eminently engaged. Co-ed sports, in the main, have combined themselves 
entirely in the person of "Dot" Perry. 

Turning from athletics to scholastic and social activities, we recognize easily 
the fact that the fame of the class rests principally on the latter school functions. 
The Class of '30 is responsible for the foundation of two societies : The New 



(21) 



1930 THE FABRICATOR 



Bedford Textile School Chemical Society and The Society for Textile Research. 
Both have created considerate interest in and outside the school. We hope that 
the classes to follow will go on where we left off. 

Of the many notable events of our school career is our Sophomore Dance 
which netted us $1.98. However, we got our experience from this first dance and 
we were able to put over our next two Senior Class Dances successfully, both 
financially and otherwise. 

The foregoing brief and very epitomized social history of the class of '30 is 
concluded. And now we turn to the last and most noteworthy lap of our Textile 
School Course — the Senior year. 

The first event of the year was the election of our class officers. Those hon- 
ored were John T. Allen, president ; Gilbert Othote, vice-president ; Albert Scaccia, 
secretary ; and Emil C. LeBeau, treasurer. 

As seniors we inherited the school and its dominions, and ran off our first 
big success as a dance, closely followed by another. Then followed brilliant days, 
joyful days, the time that is the richest heritage of the Senior. 

Came our exclusive Prom, filled with the interest only a class dance can bring. 
This affair was held at the New Bedford Country Club where an elaborate and 
excellent program of novelties was presented to break the monotony of dancing. 
Pictures, year books and rings followed in succession and kept the officers busy. 

And then the last notch in our textile school career — Commencement. Im- 
pressed with the moment of the occasion, supremely dignified, we sat through 
the formalities of the graduating program. All too soon the proceedings were over. 
Mechanically, with hundreds of envious eyes upon us, we answered the roll call 
and received that invaluable parchment our diploma, certificate of the successful 
completion of a three year course in textile education. 

And so it ends. The Class of '30 has joined that body called Alumni. Now 
we have reached the cross-roads; we are forced to go the parting of ways. As a 
class we are now but temporarily dissolved ; we shall meet again and renew the 
experiences of old. 

To our successors we leave the school's traditions and reputation for them 
to uphold as we have tried to do. 

With heartfelt feeling and sincere appreciation of what the school has. done 
for us, we, the Class of 1930, say, "Adieu!"

Soccer (2), (3); Baseball (1), (2), (3) 

A. young boy entered New Bedford Textile School three and a half years ago 
and shyly stepping up to the desk to register, said, "Charles Agrella." From then 
on the boyish feature receded and Charley is now a tower of strength. Ask Gilbert, 
he knows from experience. 

Charley and Mr. Broadfoot had many wonderful debates over the term 
"Degrees twaddle" in the Dyeing Class, and the mystery of Ohm's Law at last 
became a well-known fact to Charley. 

Charley distinguished himself in Soccer and Baseball. In Jacquard, Charley 
was the first to finish painting his weave and cutting his cards. His original Color 
Plate was on exhibition, as also was his Design book. 

The ice up at Buttonwood Park felt elated when Charley stepped upon it 
and began his fancy steps. Charley's one ambition is to be a skating instructor. 
Femininity regard him as a runner of strength, and well they might, for any- 
thing athletic sees this young man from the West End (where men are men and 
the ladies are glad of it). 

Best of luck Charley from the Senior Class !

pJOW when I was in the Gas Works, or in Springfield" are the famous, familiar 
words uttered by the eminent chemist, John T. "Bossy Gillis" Allen. 

John is a very popular boy and all the teachers take great delight in learning 
a few things from "Jawn." He is very often seen in consultation with Mr. Smith, 
and according to the outcome of our class activities, we sometimes wonder if it's 
Mr. Smith or John Allen who is running the school. 

The class recognized in John, a second Bonaparte in his achievements, so we 
elected him Class President, and we will never regret the election. 

In the laboratory he is a chemist par excellence. What he doesn't know is a 
job for the Research Chemist. 

He is also a pugilist of renown ability; ask Friedberg his sparring mate! 

You can always hear his clear ( ?) Irish tenor harmonizing with "Jakie's"?? 
until Mr. Busby decides that he has heard enough of this agonizing outburst. 

Casting levity aside, we have no doubt that John will rise to prominence in 
the chemical world, and some day we will see John in his own laboratory as Chief 
Chemist. He has our best wishes for success.

J-JERE we are! The one and only Stanley Allen, better known as "Sam". This 
young man is the school's greatest Electrical fiend, as you will find him at the 
New Bedford High School Wireless Station experimenting or making new friends 
over the air. "Sam" also has a set determination to become a great chemist and, 
at the pace he is setting now, we are sure that some day he well receive great 
honors. 

"Sam" will always be remembered by the boys in the "Lab." by his great 
marathoning to Smith Mills. Keep it up, "Sam". Some day you'll become a 
member of the Olympic Running Team. 

As Manager of the Fabricator Advertising Department, "Sam" has ac- 
complished quite a good deal. He has proven to "Tech.", that besides being a 
chemist he is a business manager. This goes to prove that some day "Sam's" 
name will be a thing to remember. 

We, the class of 1930 wish you success and prosperity, whether it be a 
matromonial or business venture.

P ROM the wilds of Shelton came a green but energetic country lad, who soon 
sold us the idea that peanuts didn't grow on apple trees. "Henny", as a debater, 
certainly has a "hot line." 

A considerable decrease in the sales of head gear was noticed since his 
arrival in town. Henry says that chopping blocks never have any coverings. 

"Flash" has become quite a linguist due to the many dinners he has had with 
our foreign envoys. 

Since "Henny" can, and has, made quite a sock, we find that his "socks 
appeal" is one of his greatest assets. His co-worker and helpmate, "Chaos", has 
assisted him in making many "transfers." Nuf sed ! 

We can all be assured of Henry's success in the great army of bigger and 
better knitters.

He played two years on the Soccer team while at school. This young man has 
made more friends in his sojourn at Textile than any one else. Whether it he 
C. Y. P. Weaving, Jacquard, Electricity, Steam or Machine Shop, "Jimmy Dooley" 
(the brown 'ayes' have it) always conquers. 

And how he plays his violin and ukelele ! And that ain't all ! His rich, clear, 
vibrant tenor can be heard for miles over New Bedford, especially when it 
happens to be "It's nice to get up in the morning, but it's nicer to stay in bed." 
New Bedford well remembers the show put on in the Empire; Jim, who gave 
Scotch impersonations; and the papers (as critics will sometimes) who gave him 
their praise. 

Peristency is his watchword. Sticktoittiveness is his strong point and Equality 
is his motto. 

The Senior dance revealed Jim with his "fair one", and showed that he could 
be serious if he wished. The senior glee club would disintegrate if Jim were 
not with them. He has done his very best towards the publication of our year 
book, and the senior class gives him their thanks. Best of luck from the Fabri- 
cator Staff and Senior class.

HAVE your car checks ready, folks, for "Eddie" is a conductor, and a good 
one, too — better than Copper. He has not been able to get interested in elec- 
tricity, however. 

"Friedee" is the best business man in the class, and we have an idea that he 
will soon have an analytical "lab" that will rival Arthur D. Little's. 

His hobby is politics, and, as we all know, an office-seeker needs friends, 
one has only to walk down Purchase Street with him to find out "Who's Who 
and IF." 

"Eddie" proved to us that no mishap is bad enough to dishearten him, when 
he had to do his whole soap analysis twice, and his temperature didn't even go up 
to "fever heat." He declares that "LUX bound to turn". 

He has a fine school spirit, and among his athletic achievements may be 
listed a questionable verdict over John Allen after a memorable battle on the 
campus. 

His only weakness is "figures", so we know "Eddie" will succeed in anything 
he undertakes.

syncopated singer of synthetic, sorrowful, songs for slumbering students. He 
saw all the shows in town over the week-end ( especially the Savoy ) and always 
had a batch of new "steam" songs with which to keep us awake during class. 
Our favorite was — "Outside" — believe it or not. 

Cecil demonstrated his athletic ability by copping the position of goalie on the 
soccer team and also made the second team in basketball. 

His pleasant disposition and helping spirit has won a place for him in our 
hearts, so come what may, the class of 1930 wishes him the greatest of luck

his place in front of the Kleig lights, but somehow or other, Roger just couldn't 
bear to leave his dear old change gears, pick and pick looms, and other play things 
(heh heh). 

"Rajah" grabbed off all the athletics honors for the past three years, captain- 
ing soccer, basketball and baseball teams. 

He ranks well up in his studies, and at the same time is always found when 
Tech's "400" makes a social outburst. In short, Roger gets the vote of being the 
school's "best all around" student, and we'll predict the same success for him in 
the business world. Best of luck "Rajah".

TAKE", as he is generally called among his friends (which includes everyone), 
needs no introduction, for he is so well known that it is unnecessary. When we 
first saw him in class, we were amazed at the physique of this envious specimen 
of manhood. Jake is, by far, the most versatile in the "Fistiana Art" at school, 
and "that ain't all, either." Although "Rough on Rats", Jake is the most like- 
able fellow, but we don't want you to get the idea that "Jake" is only a good 
fellow. 

He is a very clever chemist and in the "Lab", one may always find him 
diligently at work delving into the unknown and always coming out victoriously. 
Besides all this, Jake is also a Surgeon in the making, having formerly aided a 
well known Doctor in many of his undertakings. So "Doc", we advise you, if it 
is possible, to study medicine, for we know you will be very successful and a

To you, Jake, the best of luck and good wishes from every class at school,

STILL water runs deep, and "Emil" is several feet deeper then the most placid 
waters. Our first impression, in the "Lab", was a quiet and unassuming youth, 
but, in a short space of time we discovered that it would not do to boast with Emil 
at close quarters, for he has proved, without a doubt, that he is the greatest 
"Belittler" at Tech. 

As a student he is "par excellence" and his work in qualitative for a thesis 
("a La Costa") and technical phrases, have all the earmarks of a genius. 

Not only has he been successful in up-holding the reputation of Tech in ping

}y{ EET Ed, the great musician and sportsman. Our Ed is quite a drummer, not 
only in regard to his tales of yore, but also in the way he handles his "sticks." 
"Spkie" is quite an advocate of Winter sports, his snow shoeing, (or should Ave 
say "over-shoeing") is one of his main triumphs. Since Eddie has come into the 
lime-light, Nick Altrock has deemed it advisable to retire. 

Due to "Spike's" intensive study in steam engineering he was placed in charge 
of the "dryers," no less. But putting all puns to one side, we all agree with him 
on one subject which is "The early bird gets the worm" and Ed certainly is the 
"early bird" waiting for his "morning glory." 

We sincerely hope that Ed's success in the knitting field will be unlimited.

When Jim kissed the Blarney Stone, he certainly put his whole soul into 
said act, the result being a wealth of diversified topics with which he is wont to 
unfold to "our Bob" upon the slightest provocation at all. 

Anything and everything is deserving of his attention, whether it be Textiles, 
music, short skirts, marriage, or what have you. His latest number, just released, 
by special permission of the good old copyright owners is, "Every Time My Girl 
Runs Down, She Winds Up In My Lap." 

But to the serious side, Jim is the sort of chap you don't meet every day, 
and wished you could. A friend in need and indeed is this musical son of Erin 
from the South end. We're telling the world that when Jim starts pushing

In the class room, "Gus" was never found wanting for an answer to the

easily placed him among the leaders, he preferred to seek the golden mean. 

To "Gus" we give the attribute of the most even tempered man in the class. 
In the tenseness of an athletic struggle, in the heat of an argument, he could al- 
ways be seen with the same serene, smiling countenance, without which we would 
not recognize him. 

Beyond a doubt, "Gus" will attain the pinnacle in his profession for, knowing

CLASS PROPHESY 

ONE balmy night in May — no, it wasn't May either, it was a Saturday morn- 
ing. I remember the date well, because Christmas fell on the 4th of July that 
year. En-avant — as general express agent of the Baer and Baer Company, 
makers of heavy leno overcoats for light-weight Eskimos, it was required that I 
travel to Boliva to inspect a bumper crop of doup twine, which we raise especially 
for our own usage. Doups grow in swampy places and are botanically of the 
same species as harness reeds, y'know. 

I arrived in New York, and was at once attracted by the tenseness and ex- 
citement which showed itself on the face of every passerby. Finally I found one 
policeman (who was not in a "speak-softly") and inquired the reason for this 
display of emotions. "Why," he said "haven't you heard? Cecil Fell!" Poor 
Cecil, and that reminded me of our "Little Stanley," who had lost his life the 
week past while after fish in Lake Prokuski. The can opener slipped and Stan 
committed hari-kari. Oh dear, oh dear ! I was determined to learn more about 
poor Cecil and purchased a New York Times. Lo and behold on the very front 
page was a photo (by Harper) of Adam J. Shaw, who had just won the marathon 
speaking contest. Adam, it seemed, had just completed 17 days, 10 hours, 32 3/16 
seconds of continual talking to win first prize — a Brandes loud speaker and a pair 
of ear muffs. 

And grab the waste basket, here was Charlie Agrella getting married for 
the third time, to none other than the heiress of J. P. Morgan's shekels. That 
evening I dropped into Dot Perry's night club and there was none other than Jim 
Payne who had taken Vincent Lopez's place in the orchestral world, ably assisted 
by Al Scaccia who had sung Rudy Vallee out of a job. A familiar figure, sur- 
rounded by a bevy of beauties from Zeigfields chorus gave me a start. Gil Othote 
of all people ; this certainly was Textile Day. 

On my way out, I met Gus Perrier, who, by the way, was running an elevator 
in the Woolworth building. Gus always wanted to get up in the world and now 
he certainly had his ups-and-downs, too. From him I obtained the "hot dope" 
that Eli Waring had made several million by perfecting a right handed billiard 
cue for left handed players. I also understood Gus to say that Jimmy Dow and 
Emil LeBeau had just cleaned up the Stock Exchange, both being janitors in the 
aforesaid establishment. As I boarded a surface care the next morning, on my 
way to the boat, I heard a very familiar voice say "Fares Please, ding, ding, let's 
go" — and sure as shootin', there was Eddie Freidberg manipulating a boy's size 
cash register.

The first night at sea, a terrific storm arose, and of all the sicknesses of man- 
kind, I think mal de mere is the worst. With my waning strength I rang for a 
doctor, and in waltzes "Jack LaCosta," pill box and all. "Saw Bones' soon cured 
me of my malady. "Jake" had just returned from an expedition into the heart 
of Africa with the Happiness Boys, Stan and John Allen. The former was hot 
on the hunt after the elusive atom, while the latter was intent upon setting up 
a model city of Springfield in the jungle and show the natives a few things. He 
stated that while in Cairo, he'd met Ed Morton, enjoying the honor of playing 
first drum in the Sultan's harem orchestra. "Some fellows get all the breaks", 
I remarked, sadly. 

Among the names of the notables aboard was that of Aubrey Peters. Could 
this be "Pete" of the class of 1930? I sought him out and sure enough it was he. 
"Pete", it seems, had organized a group of men under the name of the "South 
East Mounted Police of Canada" — their motto being "Always Get Your Woman." 
Right O — . Roger Karl, so he said, was in charge of the northern division and 
was the man who had coached the 1940 Olympic team from Iceland that had 
won the icicle eating contest. 

Arriving in Guayaquil, we found the country, in fact, the whole of South 
America in an uproar. General Gonzalo Perez, of Textile fame, had assumed 
the role of dictator, united the different countries of South America, and de- 
clared war on Russia. The Soviet army, under the command of General 
Adomowicz and Minister of Munitions, Jerry Pernelet were attacking from the 
north and the betting was fairly even. 

Business before pleasure however, and it behooved me to travel on rather 
than to enjoy a few good battles. I soon reached Boliva where I found Henry 
De Marco, our manager, exceedingly jubilant over a 2 million dollar order just 
received. 

Then Bill Bartlett woke me up by sticking his head thru the tool room window 
and demanding a quart of rubber sawdust,

CLASS OF 1931 

GENERAL CLASS 

AFTER an exceedingly pleasant Summer, spent in varied ways, we returned 
to New Bedford Textile School, to renew our tasks and gain even greater 
prestige, than we earned last year. 

Most of the old "gang" came back, but the famous conbination of Ike and 
Mike was broken and some other faces were missing. 

The fraternities claimed a few more of our class and soon we found that 
there were such things as stay-bolts, crown-sheets, injectors, pumps, etc. You 
see, Mr. Crompton told us all he knew about them. 

Tony can't find the horse-power of an injector yet, but we all hope he will 
come "out of the shades". He can give you a rough idea anyway, but, "Dot's 
too mooch."

means ? Everyone in the class hears it quite frequently. We would be grateful

"disease" we don't know, but we are very sure that it is "catching". We all

might finish sometime. We hope so. Who thought of Double-Cloths and Lenos?

CHEMISTRY CLASS 

HE start of the fall semester of 1929 saw the second year chemistry class, 
the "Chemistry Sextette," return from divers summer occupations to enter 
on their second year at "Tech". 

The class, comprising Damon, Sanders, Cook, Pierce, Stevens and Akin, 
was augmented by the entrance into school of a student from Japan, who smiling- 
ly, and in broken English, told us that his "nom de plume" was H. Hamaski. 
Hamasaki, with his seemingly quaint mannerisms and ready grin, soon became a 
very entertaining and well liked member of the "Sextette". 

We spent our first few weeks of September discovering the possibilities 
and impossibilities of Steam and Color and all the little "tricks of the trade" 
relative to Dyeing and Quantitative. 

The first week in October ushered in "Fraternity Rush Week," and also 
first call for soccer candidates. The class, being represented in both fraternities, 
took an active part in "Rush Week." 

Cook, 1929 soccer manager, went after his old berth at fullback, and played 
a consistently good game all season. 

At the second year class election, two members of our class were honored 
with offices. Red Pierce was elected treasurer and Cook vice-president. 

Francis Akin, the concocter of many funny pranks, during our first year at 
school, was lost to the class for the remainder of the term because of serious illness. 

Three members of the class, Pierce, Cook and Stevens, all veterans of last 
years team, answered the first call for basketball in November.

The Chemistry Sextette, not a collection of super students or chemical 
wizards; but a combination of good sense, humor and mediocre ability, waded 
thru midyears in fine style; every fellow obtaining good grades in all his subjects. 

CLASS ROSTER 

The saying goes that "Good things come in small packages," and we 
certainly got a small package, when Brad Stevens joined the class. When Brad 
isn't shieking Ethyl Chloride or wrestling one of the lathes in the machine shop, 
he is intimidating Damon and threatening to exterminate him if Damon doesn't 
supply him with a beaker or some filter paper. 

Damon, the wee mite of the class (he only weighs 170 lbs. and stands six 
feet tall), is the only representative of his species this side of to-morrow. His 
motto seems to be, "A fight a day keeps the doctor away." Damon will not stand 
for Red Pierce calling him Beef Eater or Abey and thus the war begins. 

Red Pierce just adores Damon and shows it by affectionately calling him 
"Abey" and other exasperating titles. Red's delight is Steam ; he thinks it's a 
lot of hot air. 

Sanders is a direct contradiction to the saying, "Folks that live in glass 
houses shouldn't throw stones." He's invented more unique ways of breaking 
glass beakers and thermometers than Edison has invented electrical appliances. 
Many a sound beaker has multiplied, under his careful handling, into hundreds 
of fragments. 

Cook's chief interests at Tech are Quantitative and Bridgewater Normal 
School. He and Damon delight in complimenting each other on their skating 
ability. Cook takes to soccer like a duck to water and has played a "whale of a 
game" for the school. He, with Jimmie Gardner of the General Class, has been 
elected an associate member of the Fabricator Staff. 

Akin, as his name suggests, is not "akin" to playing funny, and good natured 
pranks, on the rest of us. His ingenuity uncovered the fact that Bunsen burners 
make excellent weapons with which to give folks an impromptu bath. We'll never 
forget what a corking host Akin is. He furnished us the best little supper party 
on record. 

Though small in stature, Hamaski, with his businesslike attitude and ready 
grin, has won quite a place in our esteem. 

We feel assured that each member of the "Sextette" will justify our pride 
in our abilitv, both as a class and as individuals ; and will strive to make his life, 
both during his school years and later business years, conform to the seemingly 
obvious motto of the class, "Success is the result of wholesome living, sound 
reasoning, and persistent labor.

CLASS OF 1932 

LADIES and gentlemen, there will now be a brief pause in the program being 
broadcast by the Fabricator through station N.B.T.S. for announcements re- 
garding the class of 1932. 

Don't go away folks ! ! ! 

The outstanding event of the year, needless to say, was our entrance into 
the school. This honor was bestowed upon the building Monday, September 9, 
1929. 

The next important step was the usual procedure in following the line of 
least resistance down to the office to be finger-printed and bereft of two months' 
allowance in order to purchase necessary supplies. Class started September 10th. 

Being Freshmen, we were expected to do the impossible. Some of us, not 
wanting to be failures, made weak attempts which proved to be painfully humor- 
ous. To cite one of these : "The teacher inquired how one would go about 
setting a picking stick for time and position. The "brilliant" answer came 
spontaneously — "Turn the loom over." The class, not understanding the col- 
loquial term, visualized the upsetting of the whole loom, and was immediately 
in an uproar. It takes so little to break the tension in a class-room where the 
pupils are so industrious.

tracted a number of candidates from our class. The team, as a whole, made 
a good showing during the season. A few members of our class volunteered 
their services to the basketball team and the group made a fine showing on the 
floor. 

Before we knew it, exams, the bug-bear of every school term, were upon us, 
but we studied like troopers and were lucky enough to attain passing marks. 

And now comes the 1932 Chemistry class, the largest class in chemistry at 
N. B. T. S. since the days when C. P. meant Canadian Pacific. And what 
a class ! Ever since the year started, we have had students trying to see who 
could make the most vile odor, but all of our hopes went on the rocks the day 
Stanley Allen's apparatus blew up. The Seniors are still superior (in that line). 

However, this class has the goods for athletics, as shown in our represent- 
atives in soccer — "Red" Wright, George "Get" Hotte, and Mark Dubiel. Wright 
also made good on the basketball court. We showed our athletic ability by 
trimming the Knitting Department in a fast basketball ( ?) game. After treat- 
ing injuries for a few weeks, we were ready to tackle any rugby team east of 
Provincetown. There are, of course, a few good Spanish athletes in the class, 
but they resented any challenges made by the upper-classmen as they did not 
care to taste defeat. 

We are also a friendly class among ourselves. Any day, one may enter 
the "lab" and hear us telling each other where to go, and at what time. Ask 
Mr. Busby, he knows. We have tried our hand at singing, also. We admit 
we're terrible at it now, but when we have had as much time to practice as the 
Seniors have had, we ought to be as good as they are. But then, we won't have 
to be very good. 

This class is also exceptionally well-known for its trustworthiness. If any- 
one happens to leave a beaker out by mistake, someone is sure to find it and keep 
it for you. The only trouble is, you can't find who the kindhearted one is. By 
the way, one member of the class has found a way so that he doesn't have to clean 
his dirty flasks. He drops them. Of course, if they bounce, he has to drop them 
again, but they seldom do. Ingenious, is it not?

PHI PSI FRATERNITY 



BETA Chapter of Phi Psi Fraternity has just completed another successful 
year in its career as the largest Textile Fraternity in America. 
September brought us twelve active members back to school and fraternal 
activities. October found us in the hustle and bustle of rushing season. 

November brought us smiling Autumn skies, when umbrellas and rain-coats 
were a la mode, amongst our willing, ah, very willing neophytes. Those "House 
of David" beards blended in very well with the russets and tans of the turning- 
foliage. Every hour was "Old God" hour, and to reach for a "Lucky" was 
merely the case of finding a candidate. Needless to say, we took advantage of 
our opportunities. 

A chapter house on Pope Street was acquired and put to very serviceable 
use during the year. Many were the hours spent there, either in the pursuit of 
Business, or her much beloved partner — Pleasure. Will the late-hour "feeds" 
ever be forgotten? 

The annual Phi Psi dance was held in Duff's Small Hall the first part of 
January and proved to be a shining light in the dull drab of our every day 
existence.

THE FABRICATOR 



The climax came in March, however, when a smoker, attracting brothers 
from our neighborhood chapters and alumni from all over New England, gave 
to us an evening of enjoyment that will forever linger in our memories. 

One of our members, Stan Prokuski has attained the distinction of having 
the highest average of any student in the school. Pres. Cook also received 
mention on the honor list, and Clif. Wareing received the Firth scholarship. 

On the Soccer Pitch, Pres. Cook was the outstanding player of the team, 
being ably supported by Tom Dubiel, "Get" Hotte, Al Poremba, and Jimmy Dow. 
Varsity Basketball claimed Adam Shaw as manager, Al Poremba as assistant 
manger, and Pres. Cook as player. Stan Prokuski is the pilot of "Tech's" 1930 
Baseball team, and the diamond will also witness Al Scaccia, Web Brown, Tom 
Dubiel, and Dan Sullivan cavorting around. 

Those of us who will leave after graduation will do so with a feeling of 
regret. Those who stay will carry on with the old Phi Psi spirit. So, Cheerio !

DELTA CHAPTER 

THIS is the roll call of active members of Delta Chapter, 27 strong, and a 
happy bunch of fellows we are, too. 

The opening day of school in September found us few in number, fifteen 
to be exact, but the good wishes and the close acquaintances we made with the 
new students increased greatly our numbers. "Such popularity must be deserved." 

Arrangements were made for the opening night and at the New Bedford 
Hotel a banquet was held and enjoyed by all. This was followed by entertain- 
ment. Such entertainment ! It was brought from the West End and these darkies 
were surely "Get Hot" boys. 

Initiation of fifteen candidates followed. We certainly enjoyed ourselves, 
and some of the boys did sure feel much relieved after getting their share. Didn't 
they, Lindy? 

Our ranks having been increased, a dance was in progress, which, held at 
Duff's Hall, was a success both socially and financially. 

The Chapter house surely has seen some funny sights, and one or two mem- 
bers are still talking about the three cents they lost. Some of the boys are finding 
out that "four of a kind" beats a "straight". Roger Karl still insists that he held 
a full house. "It's too mooch", says Tony.

Remember the night that we raised the root at the Country dub? What 

night. It will linger long in the memories of all the boys and goes down in 
- of "Frat" doings. Lest we forget, there seemed to be one of those day- 
light "rries taking place, and Gil found somebody else had stolen Ins girl. But 
to ma then Is meet he immediately stole one for himself. According to Mr.

- stance was however, but we must hand it to Warburton, 
Potel. Per I Cleveland, it is always safe to he prepared. Plans are under 
way for another of these parties. 

Th- - er team was well represented by D. K. Those who held positions 

re Karl, captain; Warhurten. Fell. Potel. Higham. Bouret, Malone, Wright 

and Dowd. The team made a good showing thanks to our Frat brother, Mr. 

1 Beardsworth. who is known to all the hoys as a reg'lar fellow. 

Warburton. Malone. Fell. Wright. Peirce. Dowd. Gallagan and Portel 

played Baskethall. Roger Karl filled the roll of player par excellence. Captain 

and coach. 

Malone. Dowd. Galligan. Frodyma are going out for Baseball. And Potel. 
Dowd. Malone. Said. Fell. Prez. Wright. Allen. Childs. Peirce, Sanders are 
going to try in the Tennis tournament. 

The yearly Interfraternity Basketball game was played at the Gym. Karl, 
Peirce. Warburton. Wright and Malone entered the floor representing D. K. 
The game started and Phi Psi took the lead with a field basket. The playing was 
rough and a casualty resulted in Peirce being hurt and having to leave the floor. 
With Fell in his place the game continued, both teams giving a good showing. 
D. K. displayed good play and, despite the loss of Peirce. soon took the lead. 
The boys managed to bring the score 24 to 18. thus making another Victory for 
Delta Kappa.

Activities were resumed with a bang this past year, and three fine men were 
pledged. Our banquet and smoker was held jointly with Gamma Chapter of Fall

The annual dance was held with Gamma chapter on February 22nd, and what 
a success it was ! Many a heart was turned that night. Favors, which certainly 
will be remembered, were given to the feminine members. 

The Convention was held this year during the week of April 25th, in New

With Beta Chapter returning to its former standing in the school's various 
activities, the boys will certainly make an excellent showing next year.

NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE CHEMISTRY SOCIETY 

THE year 1929 has been set clown in the annals of the school as one of groat 
importance, for it was in this year the chemistry seniors formed a chemistry 
society. 

Mr. Busby, head of the chemistry department, became its faculty advisor and 
the society then formed its rules, decided the time of meeting and elected its 
officers. 

The society decided to meet every other Friday evening at the school in the 
chemistry department. It was decided that each member would deliver a lecture 
at these meetings. Each one has delivered about three lectures during the year, 
on subjects of a scientific nature. 

There are three purposes or aims of the society, — 

(1) — To stimulate the minds of the members along scientific subjects and become 
interested in other scientific things outside of textile chemistry. 

(2) — To accustom them to public speaking as they will have to do when working 
in the chemistry world. 



(73) 



THE FABRICATOR 1930 



(3) — To welcome outsiders to the meetings and show them just what the chemists 
of the school are doing. 

The class officers that were elected are as follows — John T. Allen, president ; 
Stanley I. Allen, secretary, and Joaquim LaCosta, treasurer. Only senior chemists 
are eligible to join, and we note with pride that this rule has been strictly adhered 
to in spite of furious attempts of several to enter. 

The society has as its ensignia a small gold retort with the school letter en- 
graved on its face, a small gold chain and a gold numeral bearing the year of the 
class. Each member has a pin and the faculty advisor was presented with one. 

Although the society does not strive for publicity, we not that it has aroused 
interest in the school, has had articles appear in the local papers and has seen 
parts of these in the "Textile World" and the "Wool and Cotton Reporter." 

The various lectures given throughout the year and the members giving them 
are as follows : — 

John T. Allen — "The pH Ion Control" — an outline of the methods of con- 
troling aciditv and alkalinity. "Paper Manufacture" and "Gas Manufacture." 

Stanley Allen — "The Life of Pasteur" and "Portland Cement" — a story 
showing the manufacture and uses of cement. 

Edward Friedberg — "Aluminum Compounds in Foods" and "Glass Manu- 
facture." 

Joaquim LaCosta — "Bacteriology" and "Chemistry of Rubber" and "Tung- 
Oil." 

Emil LeBeau — "Astronomy" and "Biological Products," and "The manu- 
facture and Refining of Sugar." 

Albert Scaccia— "The Life of Priestly" and "Rubber and its Uses." 

In passing on, the members of this society wish the incoming chemists a 
hearty welcome and hope that they will strive to maintain the high standard set up 
by us.

A 



TEXTILE SOCIETY FOR TESTING AND RESEARCH 

LL hail to our youngest society ! Perhaps the youngest, when figuring in 
time of existence, but already old in activity and work accomplished. 



The first part of February, 1930, saw five ambitious students, under the able 
leadership of Mr. Manning, head of the Knitting Department, draw up the pur- 
poses, aims and by-laws of the society. Can we ever forget our first real meeting 
held at Mr. Manning's house? It was a complete success, for discussion waxed 
warm and furious. In fact, we feel that Greg Meagher would still be talking, if 
ice cream and cake hadn't vanquished his power of speech. 



(75) 



THE FABRICATOR 



19 3 



The purpose of this club is to encourage and propagate the testing and re- 
search of subjects relative to the industry — a large field and a large subject. 

On March 5, 1930, a meeting was held in the Knitting Department at 
4:30 P. M. during which reports on "Regain" were read and thoroughly dis- 
cussed. The depth of the subject did not affect, in the least, the ardor of the 
members, and many points, relatively unknown, were produced. 

In brief, the Testing Society has had a flying start and has an encouraging 
future. Its value, of course, can never be estimated as monetary, but will, no 
doubt, show itself in the "tomorrow" of the textile industry. 

The members are — Mr. Louis Manning, President ; Gregory Meagher, 
Secretary ; Stanley Prokuski, Gustave Perrier, Henry De Marco, James Dow.

SCHOOL SPIRIT AND AFTERWARDS 



JUST what is this something which for want of a better name we term 'School 
Spirit. If we analyze the motives and conditions which create it, we find that it 
means united support for any project that the school sponsors, or, when applied 
to sports, the whole-hearted support of all who belong, whether moral or other- 
wise. There can be no doubt that such support goes a long way towards making 
the game worth while, so get behind the team, and back them to the limit, win or 
lose. There is a revered saying in American history, which, if I may be pardoned 
the liberty of changing a little, is my conception of a real slogan for any school 
to adopt, i.e., "Our team win or lose !" The hard part of any sport is the losing, 
but since there can lie only one winner, make up your mind to be a good loser. 
Give all you have in whatever you are doing and then, if you lose, have that 
greatest of all alibi's "I did my best." There is one thing all competitors are apt 
to overlook in the heat of the contest, and that is, being a good sport at all times. 
We all know how sweet is victory when we are receiving the trophy, or trophies 
that go to the winners, so why not put ourselves in the place of the losers and 
act as we would want them to, if the positions were reversed. A little applause 
is always in place; if your team is winning give them a hand, they deserve it. If 
they are losing, give them a hand just the same, they need it to cheer them on. 
Pennants, Banners, Cups, Medals, what are they after all, but a visible sign of 
victory in some branch of sport, and over a comparatively short space of time. 
The only real thing worth while striving for, is that which comes after your 
playing days are over and the old suit is up on the shelf with the rest of the 
relics, covered with moth balls, you hear someone who was an opponent in your 
playing days say, "He was a good clean sport."

ATHLETICS 



MANY of us remember the successful season "Tech" had in Soccer last year, 
when they carried off the Inter-city championship, being undefeated for the 
season. "Tech," in its second season on the soccer pitch, tried to uphold the 
standard set by the team of the previous year. The team was not as successful 
only "breaking" even" in the number of games won and lost, but we must consider 
that "Tech" was playing a much harder schedule than that of their predecessors. 

Although "Tech" easily defeated such teams as Bridgewater, Brown, Dean 
Academy and N. B. High, Durfee "Tech" was the only team that beat us twice 
during the season to capture the Inter-city honors for this year. Vocational was 
the other team that gave New Bedford a hard test, tying the first game, the 
"Vokes" winning the second. 

Much credit is due to Ccach Fred Beardsworth in building up a team worthy 
of representing the school on the pitch. Mr. Beardsworth is no stranger to the 
game as he was Captain and center-forward on the Robbins Dry Dock team when 
they won the championship of U. S. He knows the game and how to coach it. 
A great deal of the credit in making the team strong on the defense goes to 
Captain Karl, Cook and Hotte, and on the offense to Jimmie (Slugger) Dow, 
Dubiel and Eddie Malone. 

With the soccer season over, we all turned to basket ball. Prospects for a 
successful season were never any brighter with such veterans as Captain Karl, 
Cook, Stevens, Pierce, Warberton, Malone, Galligan, and "Red" Wright. The 
team had one of the hardest schedules that any Textile team has ever faced. 

Numbered among its victories are Vocational and Durfee Textile. "Voke" 
won the first game by 2 points and "Tex" trounced them 31 to 20 in their second 
encounter. Durfee took the measure of N. B. in the first game by 1 point, only 
to have N. B. beat them by 3 points on their own floor. 

For the past three years, "Tech" has been taking a lacing in baseball. 
Last year, Mr. Henry Gero took over the reins as the Coach. "Tex" had a very 
good season, winning more games than they lost, but again, they could not take 
two games from Durfee, winning one and losing one. It looks as though "Tech" 
will have another strong baseball team with Prokuski, Stevens, Malone, Scaccia, 
Lachance, Bartlett, Othote and a number of other promising looking candidates.

Textile will have a tennis team, after a lapse of a number of years. 
They have the nucleus of a fine team, with Preston, Cook, Friedberg, Wright, 
Pierce, Poremba, Portel, Perez and Peters. All of these boys swing a mean 
racket, and it won't be any surprise to see "Tech" lead the field in their tennis 
matches. 

"We have said nothing about the men that make up the schedules, and their 
untiring effort in making such attractive schedules for the different teams. Preston 
Cook, Manager of the Soccer team, Adam Shaw, Manager of the Basketball team, 
Stan Prokuski, Manager of the Baseball team and Edward Friedberg, Manager 
of Tennis, by their cooperation with the Athletic Committee, ( Mr. Crompton and 
Mr. Busby) have drawn up the finest schedules "Tech" has ever had.

SOCCER 

VOCATIONAL — "TECH" 

The opening of the soccer season showed Tech to have as good a team as the 
previous year. This was a fast, even game, with neither team having much ad- 
vantage. This was the first contest the teams had played as a unit. "Tech" for- 
wards were way off form, due to the fact that Coach Beardsworth couid not find a 
capable center forward. 

FITCHBURG 2 — "TECH" 1 

Tech had the best of the 70 minutes of play, only to lose the game due to the 
lack of scoring ability of forwards. The Fitchburg goalie had a great deal to do 
in keeping Tech from scoring as he made plenty of stops that seemed impossible. 

Tech opened the scoring when Dow scored one a perfect center from 
Higham on the left. Although Tech had plenty of chances to score during the 
rest of the game they could not make the counter. After the half, Fitchburg 
scored one, to even the count. 

With a few minutes to play, the Textile defense in an attempt to clear, sent 
the ball in their own net, giving the visitors the game.

THE FABRICATOR 1930 



N. B. HIGH SCHOOL DEFEATS "TECH" 

During the first half, Textile outplayed the High School. Agrella, playing 
his first game at center forward, scored a pretty goal to put "Tech" in the lead. 

Near the end of the second half, the "Tech" team tried hard, hut they seemed 
tired and the High School took advantage of this "hreak" to score two goals 
within five minutes. The game, as a whole, was fast, snappy, and exciting, with 
both teams playing good ball. 

TEXTILE DEFEATS HIGH SCHOOL 2 - 1 

Displaying all the qualities of a championship team, "Tech" administered 
the first defeat to the High School to the tune of 2 to 1. "Tech" completely out- 
played and outpassed the High School team. The score would have been much 
larger had not the High School goalie made some difficult saves. This was the 
first game that the "Tech" forward line showed any signs of pass work, and when 
they let out, it was just a case of how big the score would be, time permitting. 

"TECH"4— BROWN 

Fresh from its defeat of the High School, "Tech" knocked Brown's kickers 
right off their own field to a 4 to score. Higham scored the first goal after 20 
minutes of play in the first half. 

At the start of the second half with the winds favoring them, "Tech" scored 
three goals in rapid succession. Malone scored on a long shot that had the Brown 
goalie beaten by a mile. Dow made the third goal on a pretty pass from Dubiel. 
Then Dubiel, not to be outdone, drove in the prettiest shot of the afternoon, to 
make the score 4 to 0. 

VOCATIONAL 2 — "TECH" 1 

Vocational, showing an aggressive spirit, defeated "Tech" in a fast, clean 
game at Buttonwood Park pitch. The Vocational forward wall showed a great 
deal of passing and continually worked the ball up the field only to have the Tex- 
tile defense stop them. "Red" Bates and Haskell supplied the scoring for Voca- 
tional, while Malone added the lone tally for Textile. "Red" Bates and Ed 
Rychilinski played a good game for Vocational, while the Textile defense was 
the best for the losers. 

DURFEE 1 — NEW BEDFORD "TECH" 

In a great game played at Fall River, Durfee "Tech" defeated New Bedford 
"Tech," winning in the last minute when the Durfee center scored on a pretty 
pass from his wing man. This game was featured by the pretty passing of each 
team, while the defense of each team was faultless.

DURFEE 2 — N. B. "TECH" 

Durfee Textile, showing a much improved team, defeated "Tech" 2 to 0, 
after a stubborn battle marred by the rough tactics of both teams. 

Both schools had many supporters on the side lines to cheer their respective 
teams. Feeling ran high throughout, and many players from both teams took 
time out for injuries received in the scrimmages. 

Dur fee's first score came in the first half, after 25 minutes of play. From a 
goal kick, Durfee carried the ball down the field, and, after a pass from Lipschitz, 
Burns scored on a hard drive. 

After the start of the second half, N. B. tried hard to score, but could not 
penetrate the Durfee defense, and when they did have the opportunity to score, 
either kicked the ball over the bar or miskicked it. 

After a few passes, Singleton, the Durfee center forward, had a clear field 
and, with no one to beat but the N. B. goalie, shot the ball past him to score 
the second and last goal of the game. 



N. B. TECH 3 — BRIDGEWATER NORMAL 

N. B. Tech, showing another burst of speed, easily defeated Bridgewater 
Normal school 3 to 0, at the local field. This was a fast game, with most of the 
play in Bridgewater's territory. Although the Normal School players lacked the 
knowledge of the game, they made up for it in aggressiveness, for they never 
stopped pressing. 



N. B. T. S. 4 — BRIDGEWATER NORMAL 

N. B. "Tech" journeyed to Bridgewater and administered another "White 
wash" to the future teachers, by a score of 4 to 0. This was a game with plenty 
of thrills and no soccer. Both teams made numerous fouls, but the referee only 
called two in the whole game. 

The field, as a whole, was but 60 or 70 yards long, and when the Textile 
defense kicked, they kicked practically the length of the field.

BASKETBALL 



N. B. T. S. 



M. I. T. 



In the opening game of the season, "Tech" found themselves pitted against 
M. I. T., the strongest team in New England. The visitors did well to hold the 
strong Engineers to a 20 to 11 score for the first half. The second half showed 
that M. I. T. was too fast, as they dropped in baskets from all angles to win by 
a 56 to 18 score. 

X. B. T. S. — RHODE ISLAND STATE 

Xew Bedford Textile School traveled to Kingston to meet the fast traveling 
Rhode Islanders and were defeated 46 to 32 in a fast and free scoring game. 
This is the first "Tech" team to score more than 25 points on Rhode Island since 
the start of basketball relations. The Rhode Island center led in scoring with 
25 points, while Pierce led the Whalers with 7. 

COAST GUARD 30 — TEXTILE 15 

"Tech" lost another tough game when they visited Xew London to play the 
scrappy quintet representing the U. S. Coast Guard Academy.

1930 THE FABRICATOR 



The game was marred by the rough tactics of both teams, ten fouls being 
called on each. The shooting of Malone was the deciding factor in the coast 
guard victory, while the rest of the cadet points came from foul baskets. 

VOCATIONAL 32 — N. B. T. S. 29 

Textile lost another hard fought game to Vocational 32 to 29 on the Textile 
floor. This was one of the fastest and most interesing game that either team had 
played to date, and it was all that the score shows, — fast and interesting. 

Both teams started off at a fast clip with Textile opening the scoring when 
Stevens dropped in a field basket; this lead was short lived, as "Tony" Gomes, 
the Vocational high scorer, dropped in two field goals to put his team ahead. At 
no time during the first half was there a let up in the pace. Textile missed plenty 
of shots in this period, while Vocational made each shot count to put them in the 
lead at the end of the half by a score of 23 to 16. 

After the rest, "Tech" came back strong to outscore and completely outclass 
their opponents, but could not take the lead as Vocational would stall in the back 
court to keep the slight lead that they held to win the game by 3 points, the final 
score being 32 to 29. 

N. B. TEXTILE 31 — VOCATIONAL 20 

Textile scored its first win of the season at the expense of Vocational by a 
score 31 to 20 at the Textile Gym. The game was fast and exciting, with Textile 
showing a great deal of fast, snappy passing, which had the Vocational defense 
bewildered. "Tech" started off right with the whistle with two field baskets 
before Vocational knew what it was all about. The first half ended with the 
Millmen leading by 4 points, and the score at this stage of the game was 17 to 13. 

The second half opened with "Tech" taking the offense and keeping it 
throughout, although Vocational did break through to score 7 points while "Tech" 
scored 15. 

Tech was unbeatable, with Mello adding some pep to the offense by scoring 
14 points and incidentally being leading scorer of the game followed by Dabrowski 
of Vocational who scored 10 points. 

TEXTILE 33 — R. I. SCHOOL OF DESIGN 35 

In a hard fought contest, Tech lost another game, this time to R. I. School 
of Design 35 to 33, at the Wanshuck Boy's Club in Providence. 

The game was a thriller throughout. A few seconds from the start, War- 
burton put "Tech" in the lead with a field basket. During the next few minutes 

(85) 



THE FABRICATOR 19 3 



"Tech" added to the score with 3 more baskets from the floor to hold an eight to 
three lead in the first quarter. The Textile team continued its attack during the 
next period to hold a 9 point lead at the close of the half. 

The next half saw Design slowly overcome the lead "Tech" had amassed in 
the first half to finally win out in the last 27 seconds. This certainly was a "tough 
break" for the Millmen, for after leading throughout, they were beaten in the last 
minute by a field basket to make the final score 35 to 3>3. 

TEXTILE 36 — BRYANT AND STRATTON 27 

"Tex" scored another victory by defeating the fast travelling Bryant & 
Stratton quintet at the Textile school gym by the score of 36 to 27, thus making 
up for the defeat by the same team earlier in the season. 

Crawford opened the scoring with a field-basket and was fouled in the act 
of shooting. He made both tries good. Lockwood followed with another field 
basket to make the score 6 to before "Tech" knew what it was all about. 

Karl opened the scoring with a field basket from under the hoop, quickly 
followed by two more baskets by Pierce and Warburton to tie the score. Bryant 
& Stratton, however, forged ahead to lead at the half, 19 to 14. 

The "Tech" team came on a different outfit in the second half, out passing 
and out scoring the visitors to lead at the third quarter, 25 to 23. In the last 
quarter, the Millmen completely outclassed the visitors, and scored at will to 
make the final count read 36 to 27. — Textile's second victory for the season. 

DURFEE TEXTILE 26 — N. B. TEXTILE 25 

Textile scored practically a moral victory over Durfee at the New Bedford 
"gym," when the latter defeated New Bedford by 1 point. N. B., entering the 
game the "underdog," gave the large crowd a treat when they played the Durfee 
team to a standstill by their fine pass-work and coolness under fire. 

Durfee opened the scoring when Pepka dropped in a long shot, giving his 
team a two point lead, which was short lived, as Warburton of the locals dropped 
in two "fouls" to tie the score. From then on, it was a battle royal, neither team 
holding more than a two point lead until just before the half ended, when Durfee 
was given two foul shots. Lipschitz made both ties good to make the score 13 to 9. 

New Bedford came back strongly in the second half to score two field-baskets 
in a row to tie the score. There was little scoring in this quarter, as both teams 
played a defense game, keeping the score to 19 all at the end of the third quarter. 

The fourth quarter was the fastest of the evening with first one team in 
the lead and then the other. With but one minute to go, Lipschitz dropped in a 
field goal to put his team one point ahead. Then, after the jump, Durfee "stalled" 
to keep their one point lead and won the game 26 to 25.

N. B. TEXTILE 45 — DURFEE TEXTILE 42 

N. B. Textile school basketball team avenged a defeat of last week by de- 
feating Durfee Textile 45 to 42 on the Fall River Boy's Club floor. The game 
was very fast and at times rather rough. 

Mello opened the scoring with a field basket only to have Durfee sink two 
in a row. The game took on a see-saw effect, first one team in the lead and 
then the other. N. B. had its night and they were not to be beaten, for, at times, 
they made the durfee defense look as if it were paper, by the way they cut in 
and around the Durfee guards to score time and again from under the hoop. 
Durfee led at the half by two points 20 to 22. 

The second half was hardly under way when Warburton was "knocked 
out" and had to leave the game. Malone came in for him and made his presence 
known by dropping in a field-basket to tie the score. From then on, Durfee did 
not take the lead, but were never more than 4 points behind at any time during 
this quarter. The score being 36 to 33 in New Bedford's favor. 

In the third quarter, N. B. gave everything they had. Mello received a bad 
bump and had to leave the game. Wright took his place and continued to make 
life miserable for the Durfee guards by his "sharp-shooting." "Tech" was not 
to be beaten, and the}' played rings around Durfee to score at will and win the 
game 45 to 42. 

Here is a mark at which future "Tech" second teams can shoot. New 
Bedford Textile seconds swamped Durfee seconds 75 to 22 on Durfee's own 
floor. Wright was leading scorer with 12 field baskets closely followed by 
Malone, who caged 10. Dowd and Galligan each scored 5 field baskets apiece.

SIDE-LIGHTS ON THE BASKETBALL TRIPS 

Eddie Malone's first night away from home. We wonder if he got much 
sleep? New London is quite a place, eh, Ed? 

"Red" Pierce, are you ever going to feel good on another over-night trip or 
are you still going to play sick? No more souvenirs, "Red." 

"Julius" Galligan — have you no end to your witty and interesting stories 
concerning??? Could you have gotten some sleep if Karl hadn't heen at New 
London ? 

Peter Warburton usually takes his bumps out of town. He must have some 
attraction. When boys like "Pete" fall, they fall hard. 

"Brad" Stevens — the gang wonders what he has done with his meal ticket; 
he must have quite a collection. 

Does Preston Cook still keep up his correspondence with someone at Lowell? 
He tells us what a wonderful time he had there. We don't doubt it. Yes, Malone 
and Poremba were also present, and how ! 

"Jake" La Costa's one delight is playing against Durfee Textile. We wonder 
why? 

"Jimmie" Gardner — games at Bridgewater usually start at 7:30, and not any 
later. Did you have a "flat tire" and, by the way, what did you say her 'phone 
number was? 

"Red" Wright — we wonder if the co-eds at Rhode Island State are still 
calling for you. 

"Joe" Mello — why do you like Providence College and surroundings? 

"Joe" Dowd, how are all the fair ( ?) damsels at Bryant and Stratton? Was 
the dance a success? We think so. 

"Rajah" Karl made a lot of direct hits with his B-B's at New London. We 
also hear that Karl has a great friend at Bridgewater. He calls "technicals" 
like nobody's business. Karl and he are great friends ( ?) Oh my, yes, "Rajah." 

Manager Adam J. Shaw arranges the meals for the team. He certainly ar- 
ranged a great one at M. I. T. We don't know whether that was meant for 
McVey alone, but anyhow, "Mac" went out and ordered a full course dinner 
and ate it all. Better not forget your spats on the other trips, Adam. Your 
"dogs" might catch cold. 

"Sam" McVey sure gives the boys a thrill when he hits up the old Gardner. 
If you don't believe it, ask anyone that has ridden with him on the trips. See 
"Red" Pierce for further particulars.

SHORT FICTION 



Love Letters of a Textile Student 

September 1926. 
Dear Fanny 

Well, here I am, a fully-fledged 
member of that age-old industry — tex- 
tiles. I'll start at the beginning and 
tell you all about it. 

This morning we enrolled. I was at 
school at 8 A. M., and really, you 
should see the school ! A marvellous 
three story brick edifice, and the ma- 
chinery in it would really slay you. 
One senior was telling me about the 
beautiful campus. I haven't seen it yet, 
but I'm living in expectations. He 
also went on to tell me about the 
Varsity rowing crew, which had pro- 
duced five Olympic champions and won 
slews of cups and medals. Believe 
me, I'm going to study very hard 
every night so's I'll be eligible. 

You should see the Seniors here, 
wow ! The American girl is missing 
everything by not knowing these guys. 
Big, and good looking — and smart; 
gee, I wished I knew one tenth of 
what they know. 

I met the professors — thrilled, I 
hope to tell you I was. Prexy Smith 
spoke to us. He says we're all going 
to own mills and make a million dollars. 
So I'm all set, see ! Prexy is a nice 
old English gentleman with white-hair. 
I just know I'm going to like him. 
Then there's Mr. Acomb, another 
nice Englishman, who won the Shef- 
field Handicap (what-ever that is), 
and Mr. Holt who teaches designing. 
Designing is designing, if you know 
what I mean. Then there's Mr. 
Crompton ; he's very efficient and I 
think he's American, because I never 
heard him say, "Over in the old 
countrv", — vet. And there's stacks and 



stacks of other professors. They're 
so nice to us all, that I just know I'm 
going to love school, and it's going to 
be so easy for me, because my grand- 
father's father, on my mother's side, 
was a spool-breaker, or something like 
that, in the mill. 

Give my regards to all the boys at 
the corner store. 

Yours indeed, 

Herman. 

P. S. 1 I have a bad cold, hoping you 
are the same. 
2 I'll stay home every night and 
think of you. 

H. H. 

(Lapse of two years, during which 
exams have come and gone, and our 
Herman is now in his last year, second 
down and two to go.) 

Lo 7<:id : — 

Hows the feed up in dear old Back- 
wash? Just throw yer head up, 
Hatchet-Face, and get an earful of 
this. Y'know I was slinging you the 
line about Uncle Bill and me inventing 
a new one process picker. Well it 
seems like him and me can't agree on 
nothing. Don't mind the spots on the 
paper. I was chewing some tobacco 
one of the guys gave me today, and 
I was just going to spit when I chang- 
ed my mind and sneezed. Hake's 
sakes, a guy can change his mind 
can't he, even if he don't change his 
socks. 

Well anyhow, — Bill and I couldn't 
agree. Bills method is t'put naked, 
raw cotton into the picker and chew 
it all up. After the picking Y'have

to card it, and spin it, in order to get 
the yarn. My plan is t'get holt of all 
the second hand, moth eaten, gin-in- 
jured overcoats, hats, shirts etc., and 
put'em thru the picker. They gets all 
pulled apart and the yarn comes out at 
the other end, illuminating all these 
other processes, see ? Bill sez I'm 
balmy. He says I ain't got a brain in 
me head. But I don't agree, see? I 
sey, "Maybe you been in the mull for 
50 years, mister, but here's something 
you ain't seen." "Call the fac'lty and 
the deerectors in, and I'll let ya lay 
yer glimmers on an eyefull that would 
make an Eskimo shed his fur pyjamas." 

So last Saturday afternoon, Bill gets 
Bob Acomb, Sammy Holt, Morris 
Crompton, Ike Walton and all the 
other instructors, together with several 
boards from the deerectors, and some 
big-shots in the mill racket. They 
waltz in, big as Life, all decked up in 
big overcoats, silk throat-chokers, 
bennies, and what cha-got. They 
thought I was full of bologna. Well 
they was under a — expression, and 
I was gonna show'em how to take 
laughing gas. I had some old over- 
coats and shirts, striped soots cheep, 
that one of the blokes in the Chem 
class had got off'n his uncle who runs 
a "forsellortobuy" emporium. 

Well, everything was breezin' along 
fine, Fanny, until Lady Lucy got high- 
hat and wouldn't come near me, never 
mind, smile. My second-hand soots 
went thru the picker, yeah, OK, but 
for want of a near place to park there 
duds, the "big Drinks" had piled them 
all on the travelling lettuce, which 
feeds the pickers. Bennys, overcoats, 
(worth 5 to 50 slugs) went sizzling- 
thru the beater. Believe me, girlie, 
those blade beaters never did improve 
the style on any "iron-hat" ! What 
came out the other end ain't worth 
mentioning, dearie. Ike Walton says 



he don't mind the loss of an overcoat, 
but he did mind losing the quart of 
"fire-water" he had in the pocket, 
seein' he just been to the docs' and had 
an inscription filled. 

Well, keep your nose clean, 

Herman. 

P S 1 — Bill Smith says I need a 
vacation. 

P S 2 — I wuz gonna stay in and 
study for a change, but I 
gotta date at the Hibern- 
ians.

Chemistry of a Kiss 

Kisses were discovered by an old 
alchemist named Adam during his 
research on apples. He was ably as- 
sisted by Eve, to whom much of the 
credit of the discovery is due. Kisses 
have the formula KIS2. This kiss 
may be produced synthetically, but the 
natural is more widely used. It may be 
found in the free state in parks, autos, 
parlors, porches, and similar places. 

Chemical Properties : — KIS2 is very 
slightly reactive to metals in the Fe 
group, but has a strong affinity for 
gold and platinum, with which it reacts 
to form a great deal of hot air. 

Physical Properties : — It is insoluble 
in H2 O, but readily soluble in alcohol, 
cosmetics and other organic solvents. 
It is exceedingly sensitive to light, 
particularly moonlight. 

Uses: — KIS2 because of its peculiar 
chemical as well as physical, properties, 
finds various uses in the arts — especial- 
ly in the art of love making.

ARRON X. DILLPICKLE OF THE FABRICATOR STAFF PICKS 
HIS 2 1/6 ALL AMERICAN ELEVENS FROM THE CLASS OF 1930. 

PURCHASE ST. PANTHERS 

RIGHT END — Aubrey Peters has been picked for this position. He is such a 
blonde that the fair fans on the sidelines just dote on having him where they 
can easily see him. 

RIGHT TACKLE — Jake LaCosta. He earns this position by his readiness to 
tackle anybody, everybody, or anything. 

RIGHT GUARD — Emil LeBeau. We put this big brute in here just to smash 
openings. Also to guard against turning rancid during flight. 

CENTER — Eli Waring. This is the only position for the Padanaram Flash, 
as he needs support on both sides to keep him awake. In one game where 
he played end, they found him asleep behind the goal post, using the pigskin 
for a pillow. 

LEFT GUARD — Stan Prokuski. We've selected him as our anchor man, because 
he's got so much avoir-dupois that he couldn't move to any other place. 
Besides, he played on the Webster Bohunks when they won the champion- 
ship of South Rhubarb County. 

LEFT TACKLE — Cecil Fell gets the big hand for this post ; we figure that his 
ability to "faw down and go boom" will trip up many opponents. 

LEFT END — Bill Bartlett should get the call here. In fact the color scheme is 
so worked out that Bill won't be placed next to a blonde, as he forgets his 
signals when said condition takes place. 

QUARTERBACK — Adam Shaw won out by a nose in the race for this berth. 
His father claims that he spent a mint of money to send Adam to school, 
and all he got was a quarter back. 

RIGHT HALF — Charles Adamowicz and his iron bronc have been smashing- 
thru lines of force all year. Charlie was formerly a star with the Rivet St. 
Violets. 

LEFT HALF — Roger Karl. This boy is a wonderful passer, as he can be seen 
any hour of the day, taking a pass at Gil Othote. "Rajah" was an under- 
study to "Little Egypt" and so developed plenty of curves. 

FULLBACK — Only one man could fill this post, people. We hunted for a 
dashing, smashing, ball-totin', line-plunging, dropkicking he-man. Gus 
Perrier. 

Jerry Pernalet gets first call as a "sub". He plays a whale of a game. Last week 
he bid four on hearts and then made a grand slam in clubs. Fawncy that.

1930 THE FABRICATOR 



MAXFIELD ST. BONECRUSHERS 

RIGHT END — Henry DeMarco should cinch this. This Tarzan of the Grapes 
was the inventor of the DeMarco Full Fashion Moleskins — Fit to Kill. 

RIGHT TACKLE — Not only a great defence player, Gil Othote shines on the 
offence as well. The only time Gil was caught napping on "defence" was 
when a Nantucket bull chased him and Gil failed to clear the barbed wire. 
Ripping, Wot ! 

RIGHT GUARD — Stan Allen is one of these high frequency ball players with 
remote control. His Aunt Enna wouldn't let him play last year, so he went 
up in the air about it and we're positive he'll cover more ground than ever. 

CENTER — Charlie Agrella as a center has no peer. He's been the center of 
attraction for years out at the West End, hasn't he girls. 

LEFT GUARD — For no reason at all we throw Jimmy Dow in here. He's 
pestered the life out of the committee to get his name in here, so we hope 
that this will keep him quiet. 

LEFT TACKLE — Eddie Friedberg. We contend that if Eddie can ride a Fort 
Rodman tram-car he ought to be able to ride his opponents. Then again, 
if all of Eddie's friends come to see him play, there's going to be standing 
room only. 

LEFT END — General Perez was first string end on the Ballyhoo native tribe in 
South America. These bozos used to cut off a victim's head, use the eyes 
for marbles, the teeth for dice, the skull for a football. Nize peoplish ! 

QUARTERBACK — We've choosen a guy here that can out-talk any loud 
speaker in captivity — John Allen. Johnny could talk his opponents down 
fifty yards in exactly eight and one half split seconds. 

RIGHT HALF BACK — Here we have a chance to beautify the great American 
game by putting Al Scaccia on our list. Al never saw a football (or anything 
else) until he left Franklin, but then, times do change. 

LEFT HALF BACK — Jim Payne. This lad can throw a mean arpegio, and 
his crescendo and pizzicatii are simply wonderful, if you know what I mean. 

FULLBACK — We believe that the team gets the drop on its opponents when 
Dot Perry is used in this position. The last game she played in, the other 
side claimed that she was too rough, and fifty spectators were hurt when 
she crashed thru a concrete wall into the grandstand. 

Ed Morton is the most all around substitute we know. He played all around, — 
Duffs, Sharpshooter's etc. Incidentally we use Ed's feet to give extra 
measure on first downs.

MUCH of the success of the 1930 
edition of the Fabricator is 
dependent upon our advertisers. 
The modern trend is toward effici- 
ent advertising, thru the medium 
of the periodical. However we feel 
in this case, a spirit of friendship 
went hand in hand with the interests 
of business. 

So whenever possible, we urge 
our readers to patronize the con- 
cerns who have advertising space 
in this Annual.

a tissue nainsook to a thick luxurious carpet — from 
softest cotton, silk or vegetable fibres, to harsh threads 
— linen, asbestos and even metal — whatever the textile, 
for whatever purpose, the Crompton & Knowles Loom 
Works design and build looms especially adapted to its 
weaving. 

Through the years new looms have been designed 
and perfected — new devices added to closer approximate 
ideal efficiency for varied purposes. Dependability, 
endurance, and economy are outstanding features. 

Whatever your weaving requirements, the

If the customer will decide 
what condition he wants, the 
problem becomes 



OUR, 

Engineer 




Not a salesman's promise, but 
a matter of fact ; of how much 
evaporated water is necessary. 
If it is not thought desirable 
to accept our data, the custo- 
mer's engineer can figure this 
out. 



The value of a humidifying 
equipment lies in its proven 
(I said proven) ability to 
evaporate a definite amount of 
water as, when and if wanted. 




We not only guarantee to evaporate this 
pre-determined definite amount of water but no 
contract of ours is complete until it is proven 
to the satisfaction of the customer.

"WHAT'S IN A NAME?" 

The name of a product is of distinct value 
when it represents years of profitahle service 
to a given industry. 

The growing demand for the 



WyaJnfdTfe 



Qua/ity and ServJce 




is offered as proof that these special purpose alkalies are performing 
profitable service in hundreds of mills the country over. 

The name "Wyandotte" is consequently associated so definitely with 
the production of better textiles that increasing numbers of mill operators 
standardize these products for all operations where alkalies are required.

LOOKING BACKWARD and FORWARD ! 



Graduation Day — a time to stop, to look back over your 
student years, to look forward to your future.

years; marvelous changes in fabrics, in fibres, in style trends, 
creating demands for new chemical products. 

Looking forward, we see an ever-changing industry in which 
Dame Fashion will always set the pace at which textile 
chemists, dyers, printers and finishers will march. 

In that forward march, this Company will keep step with 
you, studying your needs, developing chemical specialties to 
meet them. 

Always Consult Us About Your Problems and Our Products

of workmanship and material are more important than price. It is mere-
